My favorite books are whatever I’m in the mood for that’s great at the time. It can be an intellectual book, such as The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, full of history and philosophy. It might be a series of offbeat mysteries with engaging POV characters, such as those written by Lawrence Sanders. There are times I’m craving romance, but it has to be well-written (and I’m very picky now) ~ Jennifer Crusie is tops for contemporaries. There are several authors I enjoy in the Regency category, and I’ll try new ones if the blurb and first page seem compelling. Sometimes I want to read short stories, and my faves are by Ray Carver and Haruki Murakami. And of course I need a foray into poetry once in a while ~ love Robert Frost, even now. And I will read a well-regarded animal story. Wesley the Owl by Stacey O’Brien was amazing, and Soul of an Octopus by Sy Montgomery was incredible.
I don’t generally read books about politics, history, health, celebrities, science unless animal related, sci-fi, horror (Stephen King exception), or religion. I have read some of these in the past however.
Basically I like what I like. 😀
